The NBCC is a place where readers and authors come together and depart friends. Nothing can capture the true essence and joy our weekend of Literary Bliss offers, but this clip does show a tad bit of how we roll–and you should, too.

19th-Annual NBCC July 27-30, 2023 at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead

The National Book Club Conference places readers in an upscale, intimate environment with some of their favorite authors–and introduces attendees to new talent to add to their reading lists. The panel discussions on how to publish your book, the dynamics of the publishing industry and Black women’s health lend invaluable information that is lasting.
Since its inception, some of the most famous and talented authors have been a part of our weekend, including NBCC Literary Legend honorees Ambassador Andrew Young and Alice Walker, the prolific Walter Mosley, trailblazing Terry McMillan, inspiring Iyanla Vanzant, dynamic Jenifer Lewis, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Susan L. Taylor,  Tina Lifford, Bryan Stevenson, Pearl Cleage, Hill Harper, Dr. Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Roland S. Martin, Terrie Williams, Ntozke Shange, Tyrese Gibson, Zane, Kimberla Lawson Roby, Judge Glenda Hatchette, Victoria Rowell and Stephen L. Carter, among many others, including the late Eric Jerome Dickey, E. Lynn Harris, Bebe Moore Campbell, Francis Ray and J. California Cooper.
